It is common for the skin on the face to gradually loosen and sag over time, creating wrinkles, jowls, and droopiness beneath the eyes. Among the facelift surgery candidates excessive sun exposure and fluctuations in weight can speed such process, often making people look years older than they are. London Plastic Surgery Centre aims to restore a smooth, youthful appearance to our patients by lifting and removing excess facial skin and tightening the underlying muscles.

Face lift surgery can be performed on both men and women, but it needs to be customized. Remember, men and women have distinct facial features.
The temples, cheeks, jowls, and neck skin are undermined. The incisions are carefully designed to be completely hidden.
The muscles (or SMAS) of the skin are lifted in the optimum direction. Sometimes this differs from the direction of the skin lift. Doing so can help to prevent a “lifted look.”
The final result should be smooth and shapely.
The incisions are closed.
The final result is a youthful and rested appearance. The cheekbones are higher, the jaw line smoother, and the neck angle tightened.
